Joint virtual, inaugural meeting of the National Advisory Committee on Seniors and Disasters and the National Advisory Committee on Individuals with Disabilities and Disasters | August 4, 2022
The NACSD and the NACIDD will conduct a joint virtual public meeting on August 4, 2022. The two committees will provide a status update on their work since March on topics related to national public health and medical preparedness, response, and recovery, specific to the needs of older adults and people with disabilities in disasters.
The nationally renowned subject matter experts appointed to the HHS national advisory committees advise the Secretary and the ASPR by holding working groups and public meetings throughout the year to address high priority issues and develop recommendations. These committees bring timely analysis, crucial perspectives and new ideas to ASPR’s strategies and programs.
The boards and committees listed below enhance public health emergency preparedness and response by coordinating federal efforts for the prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery from public health emergencies or medical disasters. They advise on strategic planning and provide expert guidance to lawmakers, the Secretary, and other decision-makers. Many of these boards focus on specific issues, such as biodefense, biosecurity or biosafety.
